About this course

Creating an inclusive culture & positive workspace

Everyone has the right to feel safe, validated, and be their authentic selves. It is all our responsibility to create a space where that is possible.

By the teacher of one of our most popular courses, Emotional Intelligence: Make deeper connections, BK Chan brings exceptional depth, breadth, warmth, and wisdom to one of the most important organizational competencies today – diversity, equity, and inclusion.

This course provides the tools to help you audit and eliminate existing barriers within your organization and practice. It will help you become more aware of your privilege. (You don't feel privilege; only the absence of it.) And, it will elevate your skills for supporting 2SLGBTQ+ communities.

What you will learn…

  • How to create a safer, more inclusive workplace
  • How to become a better ally in reducing systemic barriers within your organization or practice
  • How to interact on a 1:1 basis and with your team in a way that is respectful and inclusive
  • Do’s and don’ts – what do you need to put into action to be an ally, and what should you avoid
